At the start of the 1943-45 campaign, both the US 5th Army HQ and the BR 2nd Army HQ are loaded down with all sorts of light and heavy AA units. What do people generally do with these?

I understand that you don't want to attach AA to individual divisions, but where do players put all these units? Do you distribute them evenly among Corps HQ? Do you attach them to airbases? Or what?

I find they are pretty useful at corps and divisional level. The Germans have enough armoured formations and the additional firepower is welcome - at least for the lighter and medium ones.

By late 44 I do start to disband some of the heavier ones. You don't really need your admin pts for all that much by then and it releases some useful manpoer.

Will AA fire at armor?

I will move a bunch into ports to punish the germans for trying to bomb them. Especially just after d-day

As the Allies, how do you attach individual AA units to ports or airfields?

The HQ that is holding the AA units will probably have to be on the same continent as the ports you are trying to assign them to.
